any A77 owners tried 8-16mm Sigma on it ?

Hi all,

I do a lot of architectural photography inside cramped industrial factories, and my lens of chioce is an 8-16mm Sigma

I actually use it on the A580 at present as although I find this camera to be a dog compared to the A700, it does produce a nicer low light JPG ( using DRO at Level 5 ) than the A700, even if it does feel like a toy

I was wondering if any of you early A77 purchasers had this lens that you could maybe try on it to see if there are any compatibility issues I've heard rumours that it may not focus on thae A77 body ?

Regards, Stu
